He attended Kershaw County Public Schools and he drove school bus for the "head Start" children.
Albert was an active member of White Oak Baptist Church. He accepted Christ, was baptized and became a member with full rights. As a member, he served as the Chairman of the Trustee Board, member of the Mass Choir, an Usher, and Church Sexton. Albert loved his work as a trustee and enjoyed working in the church. He visited the sick and did whatever he could do for them with a smile and joy in his heart. He served the church up until his health failed.
Albert was employed in several positions throughout his career. He worked as a doffer in the textile industry and was previously employed by Springs Mill in Lancaster, South Carolina and DeRoyal Textiles in Camden, South Carolina. He also worked as a pilot car driver making sure that mobile homes were safely moved on the highway and as a truck driver for the Standard Warehouse in Lugoff, South Carolina.
Albert had a love for cars. He was known working on old cars and restoring them to show room condition. Albert took pride in his work and loved cleaning and polishing his car for car shows. He won a number of the car shows he entered. Albert is remembered most for being a comedian. He loved to tell jokes and make people laugh much like his sister, Clara.
In addition to his parents, Albert was preceded in death by a sister, Creasia B. Jones; two brothers, James Leroy Jones and John Henry Jones; a niece, Loretta A. Long, who was reared in the home; and one brother-in-law, Moses Sumpter, Jr.
